On-Air On-Soaps wanted to update our site visitors on the latest on the developments in Jeanne Cooper’s (Katherine Chancellor ) medical condition, which we know fans have been following day to day showing their love and support of the iconic star of The Young and the Restless.
This afternoon, rumors began swirling that the 84-year-old Daytime Emmy winner had passed away. The original offending tweet apparently came from @bravomaxine who related to her followers, “RIP Jeanne Cooper (1911-2013) Dead” It was then reported at Jeanne Cooper’s facebook page that a tweet went out from former Y&R star, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) who had misinformation. Cooper’s page said, “Despite @victoriarowell’s previous post #JeanneCooper’s passing, she is still very much alive. Please disregard this misinformation.”
Eric Braeden (Victor, Y&R) also quickly took to his Twitter account to rally around his long time beloved co-star Cooper, relating: “Contrary to some statement, Jeanne Cooper is doing better and sitting with her daughter Caren by her bedside!!”
Jeanne Cooper’s family also clarified the rumors on her facebook relating: “We have been read some articles that report Jeanne as having passed away. And while it is true that she is indeed still in the hospital and undergoing care, she is still with us and we are grateful that she is. We do not yet know what the future holds, but that is the nature of life. We know that updates have been less frequent, but that is because we are focusing all of our energy on her at this time. We continue to thank you all for your love, support, and prayers. Thank you! Love to all!”
On-Air On-Soaps moments ago spoke to a family representative and confirmed that Jeanne is said to be holding her own and doing somewhat better today, and yes, she is still very much alive!
We will keep you updated as information warrants on the developments in Jeanne’s health situation, but wanted to make sure, you, her fans, had the latest correct information. Share your thoughts here on the latest developments and keep sending your thoughts and prayers Jeanne’s way.
